Women's Self Defense In Bondi

Aside from all classes offered in the Adults Gracie Barra Program Structure, our school offers self-defence classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a means of self-defence. Our Self Defense classes are offered to both men and women,  but ladies do have the option of joining our women-only class if preferred.  As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to defend themselves.
The Gracie Barra Bondi Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defence curriculum, with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations. The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none when compared to classes offered in traditional gyms.
You’ll notice a very positive and friendly environment when you enter our school. Although martial arts can be intimidating for women, our women's class is designed to be as welcoming as possible. You will find a group of girls who are excited to be there and excited to have you there. The instructor will run several basic drills and after a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defence techniques and real-life scenarios.
